A Letter From The Editors 

"Time is the great Physician" — Benjamin Disraeli 

It's about time. Today, we are finally graduating from medical 
school. But for the class of '85, these past four years have repre- 
sented a "time of change," both for ourselves and for the universi- 
ty. We have witnessed the transformation of Hahnemann from a 
college to a university. We have seen a new university president and a 
new dean of the medical school. We have been the 
first class to graduate under the new curriculum 
which was seemingly formed only days before it 
was to be implemented. Many of us have undergone 
changes in our personal lives such as marriage, en- 
gagement, or self-discovery. We think it's safe to 
say, though, that none of us are the same person we 
were 3 years, 9 months, and 10 days ago when, on a 
humid thursday in August, most of us gathered in 
Emily Rommel Hall for freshman orientation. 

But it was not iust these changes that led us to 
sub-title the 1985 yearbook "A Time of Change" and use TIME 
magazine as a format. We have all made a large time committment 
toward becoming physicians and for most of us, our years of training 
are not yet finished. And if you will permit us to change Disraeli's 
quote (referring to the recuperative powers of the human body) to 
"Time makes the great Physician," it becomes especially relevant. 
For as we have already discovered, each year of medical school has 
brought us an incredibly large amount of additional knowledge. We 
can also expect that each year in residency or practice will continue to 

increase this knowledge as well as give us irreplaceable experience in 
our chosen field. Thus, the long years behind and the even longer 
years ahead should combine to make us better physicians. 

And so, the 1985 MEDIC is dedicated both to the time we have 
spent changing and to the time we have spent learning. But before 
proceeding, we'd like to take a little time to thank some of the people 
who have helped to make this book a reality. To Bill O'Brien of 
Jostens Yearbook for his help in the technical aspects of putting the 
book together. To John Wilson of Zamsky studios for his expertise in 
photographing the senior section, the Phila- 
delphia section, and just about anything else 
we wanted a picture of. To Barbara Williams, 
Hahnemann archivist, for her invaluable help 
in supplying both the pictures and the infor- 
mation needed to create our cover story. To 
Sally Plasky and the secretaries in Dr. Ben- 
nett's office who were a constant source of aid 
to us throughout the year. But most of all, 
we'd like to thank the members of our class 
who contributed their time toward helping us 
with the vast amounts of photography, layout, and scut-work which 
went into this book. Their names are listed elsewhere. 

Best of luck in your careers and perhaps we'll all see each other 
again — at some other time.

Cover: The class 
of '85 certainly has 
been through a 
time of changes, 
including a new 
University, a new 
president, and a 
new curriculum. 
But Hahnemann 
itself is a much 
different place 
today than it was 
in years past. This 
section takes a 
nostalgic look at 
those changes. 


Profile: Dr. Hugh 
D. Bennett has 
served many classes 
of Hahnemann 
medical students 
well during his 
tenure as Dean of 
Students. Now, 
however, there is 
talk that he will 
soon be stepping 
down. Read about 
his illustrious 
career in this 
interview with 
Dean Bennett. 


Philadelphia is 
featured in this 
colorful look at the 
city which many of 
us called home for 
the past four years. 


It's been a busy 
four years outside 
of Hahnemann. See 
what you missed 
while studying for 
that Anatomy final. 


The Class of 1985 
is on stage as each 
senior is displayed 
individually in all 
his/her splendor. 


On match day, 
most of us find out 
where we will be 
spending the next 
few years of our 
lives — to the 
enjoyment of most.

The Philadelphia Story 

A Colorful Look At The City In Which We 


Philadelphia, city of 
brotherly love. It 
doesn't exactly roll off 
your tongue, does it. But for 
most of us, it was home for 
the past 4 years. We resided 
in its apartment buildings, 
its townhouses, its condos. 
We lived in center city, off- 
center city, and the suburbs. 
We walked, bussed, and 
trained to get there. But no 
matter where, in what, or 
how we got there, the city of 

Phildelphia was a very big 
part of our lives while at 
Hahnemann University. 

I don't think anyone will 
forget the parades that filled 
its streets with music and 
fun. Or the snowstorms that 
brought the city to a stand- 
still but didn't cancel 
classes. Or of course, the 
city-wide festivals like Su- 
per Sunday. We don't have 
any pictures of those things. 
Or for that matter, of Phila- 

delphia scenes after mid- 
night. We were scared to go 
out. But what we do have 
should bring back many 
fond memories as you sit on 
the beaches of California, 
the sidewalks of New York, 
or anywhere else. 

And so, without further 
ado, we now present a picto- 
rial retrospective of the city 
that plays host to our favor- 
ite medical university. 

For anyone who has driven, hiked, or 
walked along the west bank of the Schul- 
kyll River, Boathouse Row at Night 
is a sight that few will forget. These 
buildings are used for storing the racing 
shells used by the crew clubs and college 
crew teams in the area. At night, thou- 
sands of general electric lightbulbs, posi- 
tioned around the outside of the multi- 
colored buildings, are turned on at the 
city's expense. And you wondered why 
your electric bills were so high. 

This rare view of the Art 
Museum is also photographed 
from the west bank of the 
Schulkyll river. Seen in the 
shadow of the museum is the 
historical waterworks which 
served to supply all the water to 
the city of Philadelphia at the 
turn of the century. It was later 
used as a romantic outdoor cafe 
overlooking the scenic river. 


A New Look At Olde City 

Philadelphia was founded in 1682 
by William Penn and extended from 
Vine St. to South St. between the 
Delaware and Schulkyll rivers with 
streets layed out much as they are 
today in this area of two square 
miles. During the first three-fourths 
of the 18th century, Philadelphia 
was the center of the New World's 
art, culture, and industry. During 
the revolution, Philadelphia was the 
seat of the Continental Congress 
and it was the national capital from 
1790-1800. During the war years, the 
city was the hub of military and 
diplomatic activities with troops 
passing through the city constantly. 

Much of the architecture of that 
period has been preserved and 
restored in the area known as Olde 
City. Here, exploring med students 
may find independence hall 
(opposite page, bottom left), the 
liberty bell, Betsy Ross' house, the 
2nd bank of the U.S. (opposite 
page, top right), Carpenter's Hall, 
and Christ Church, to name just a 
few attractions. Furthermore, many 
of the 18th and early 19th century 
structures have been restored as 
residences. A walk through the Olde 
City area reveals many streets 
which are restored to look as they 
did back in colonial days (top right 
and opposite page, top left). And 
perhaps the most authentic way to 
travel about the area is the way 
they did back in colonial days — by 
horse and buggy (bottom right). 

The renewal of the Olde City area 
has brought a resurgence of 
specialty shops, restaurants and 
nightlife activity in the area. 
Headhouse square (opposite page, 
bottom right) is made up of all 
three of these built into a type of 
"colonial Mall." Nearby is the more 
modern shopping area, Newmarket. 
Just about all of us, at some point 
during medical school, have made 
the pilgrimmage down to the Olde 
City area, whether for food, drink, 
or history.

Phountains Of Philly 

From the Swann Fountain in 
Logan Square to the water 
fountain between the mens room 
and the ladies room on the first 
floor of the New College 
Building, Philadelphia is 
reknowned for its awe-inspiring 
fountains. I, for one, feel quite a 
bit of awe when I see one of 
these marvels of plumbing. Yeah, 
there sure are a whole lot of 
fountains in this town, not to 
mention the multitudes of water 
fountains found in Hahnemann 

All right, so there isn't a lot to 
write about fountains. But we 
had these three pretty pictures 
and, well, we wanted to get them 
into the book. Sorry.

An Ode To Billy 

In 1683, William Penn envisioned a city of streets layed 
out at right angles and broken up only by the placement 
of five large squares which would be reserved for public 
parks. These were initially given such clever names as 
north west square and south east square. Today, except for 
the northwest square which has become rather circular in 
appearance, these squares remain and have been renamed 
Logan, Franklin, Rittenhouse, and Washington. The 
formerly-named center square, now called Penn Square, is 
the only one that is no longer an open space. It holds the 
tallest building in Philadelphia, City Hall. 

Atop City Hall is the statue of William Penn (Billy 
to his friends) sculpted by Alexander Calder. The figure, 
37 feet high and weighing 53,348 pounds, is the largest 
sculpture on a building in the world. It was erected in 1894 
and faces northeast toward Penn Treaty Park in 
Kensington where Penn made a treaty with the Indians. 

On this page, you can see three views of Billy that you 
may have never seen before. They tell me that Billy can 
get rather obscene from certain vantage points and that 
the scroll in his right hand looks like — well maybe you 
ought to see for yourself.

Ya Better Shop Around 

It starts around the second 
week of freshman year, when the 
fear of failing gross anatomy is 
overtaken by an evern stronger 
emotion — hunger. The food 
you've stockpiled in your 
refrigerator is running 
dangerously low and you've 
already made five trips to 
MacDonalds. The snack machines 
in the Stiles lobby are just not 
holding your interest. It's time to 
make your move. Before you 
know it, you've taken your first 
steps toward the great munchie 
hunt. Fortunately, the area 
around Hahnemann is blessed 
with the Reading Terminal 
Market (right) which contains 
just about anyones' idea of 
sustenance. Start with the more 
traditional fare of cheesesteaks 
and pizza. From there, move on 
to exotic cheeses, Amish desserts,

Indian curries — you name it, it's there. For the more 
culinarily inspired (and less academically paranoid), don't 
forget to bring home the saffron. 

Slowly, both your confidence and your wanderlust build. 
It's time to check out the Gallery I and II (left). Here 
are to be found not only more edibles and potables, but 
also clothing that doesn't smell like formalin. 

Once you've come this far, it's an easy step across 
Market Street, that veritable Red Sea for Hahnemann 
freshmen. Continue on and brouse (remembering that 
HEALloan) in some of the»shops of Chestnut Street. One 
could stop for a bite here. However, Mama Angelina's, 
party supplier extraordinaire, is only two blocks away on 
Walnut Street (opposite page, bottom right). Continuing 
along Chesnut Street to 5th street, one finds the elegance 
of The Bourse (bottom right and left) where the best 
wine store, as well as some other fine shops may be found. 
Finally, a scant five blocks to the south is the party 
atmosphere of South Street (opposite page, bottom left) 
which also boasts some of the finest antique shops in the

From Our Point Of View 

We thought that you might like to 
have a record of how you saw 
Hahnemann on your way in to class or 
rotations (although I think you were 
lucky if you could focus on anything at 
that time in the morning). Many of us 
approached it from Hamilton Square 
and north (opposite page, top left) via 
a walkway of parking lots. Still others 
who lived in the Logan Square area 
first saw Hahnemann as a monument 
rising out of the greenery of Franklin 
Plaza (opposite page, bottom right). Of 
course, those who lived in Stiles Hall 
never saw the school at all but rather 
focused on that green light (opposite 
page, top right) which signified that 
morning rush hour was not yet going 
to flatten you. And those on surgical 
rotations only saw Hahnemann at 
dawn or earlier (opposite page, bottom 
left). But, I think that no matter how 
you saw our university, we all looked 
up to the place as home.

Out To Lunch 

One of the highlights of every medical student's day, 
whether in classes or on ratation, is lunch time. For 
those who did a lot of surgical rotations, this article 
doesn't apply, since you never ate lunch anyway. The 
closest place to go is the hospital cafeteria which offers, 
well, cafeteria style food. It may not have been good, 
but at least it was expensive. 

Right outside on fifteenth street sits BJ's 
luncheonette which is your best bet for a pretzel or a 
hot dog if the line isn't too long. BJ is the one with the 

For those with a little more cash, Bonanza is across 
Vine Street and offered deli sandwiches. The food is 
great, the portions generous, but it is rather expensive 
on a med student's salary. 

If you had a little extra time for lunch, you might 
have walked the five blocks down Race Street to 
Chinatown. It didn't matter which restaurant you ate at 
although everybody had their favorites. They all serve 
the same food, it all costs the same, and you'll feel just 
as bloated walking back to Hahnemann for the long rest 
of the afternoon.

These pictures, taken from the viewing tower atop City 
Hall, give one a loftier view of Philadelphia without the 
litter, the car exhaust, or the street bums. One can see 
Broad Street stretching south toward the sports stadiums 
(below), the Benjamin Franklin Parkway connecting JFK 
Plaza with the Museum of Art (bottom right), and finally, 
Broad Street heading north (top right) which includes an 
aerial view of Hahnemann.

We Is Cultch'ed 

No, a medical student's life was 
not all books and studying. While 
in town, many of us have seen 
the world-famous Philadelphia 
orchestra at the outdoor setting 
of the Mann Music Center. There 
were numerous plays watched at 
the Forrest, Shubert, and Walnut 
Street theatres. Concerts by 
"contemporary artists" (the 
rolling stones, Springsteen, 
Zevon) were plentiful at the 
Spectrum, Tower Theater, and 
the Academy of Music. But some 
of us craved the quiet of a 
museum for some peaceful 
contemplation and Philadelphia 
offers the Art Museum, the 
Franklin Institute, and the Rodin 
Museum among others. But of 
course, what most med students 
really craved was found just 
across Vine St. ...

Wine And Vine 

After a tough set of exams, most of us needed a spot to 
unwind and have a drink or five. A place where one could 
enjoy a gentle ambience while chatting amiably with a class- 
mate. A pub where one could buy cheap beer and eat good 
food. Doc Watson's provided none of these things. However, 
it was close by and did open at 11:00 AM. And so, that's where 
you found many of us after exams on Friday afternoon. Be- 
sides the beer was cold and the food wasn't all that bad. Doc 
Watson's served as the meeting place after exams, after labs, 
and just about after anything during our first two years. Later 
on, we found other night spots, but Doc's will be forever 
remembered (or forgotten, depend- 
ing on how much you had to drink). 

One problem with Doc's was that 
it closed at 2:00 AM and you want- 
ed just one more drink. Right next 
door was the infamous Morning 
Glory which sold bottled beer and- 
er-other things well into the night. 
At the risk of incriminating myself 
any further, I'll say no more about 
it, although those of you who ven- 
tured within its dark confines know 
of what I speak. 

Of course for many of us, Vine 
Street was more than just a way to 
get to the Ben Franklin Bridge or 
to the Schulkyll expressway. If you 
lived north of it, the road was a 
formidable barrier to be crossed on 
your way to and from Hahnemann. 
It is said that the average med stu- 
dent, weighted down with two or 
three textbooks and moving at 
about the speed of a slow sprint, 
could almost make it across all 
twelve lanes if he started at the ex- 
act millisecond the light turned 
green. But then we all knew medi- 
cal school wouldn't be easy.

the lab one day and somebody 
said, "hey, wouldn't it be funny if 
we wrote a book about Gross 
Anatomy but made lots of mis- 
takes, hired a chimpanzee to do 
the illustrations, and let my eight- 
year old daughter write the 
copy?" Well, we were all kind of 
high from the formaldehyde and

done. So you see, it was all a joke.

We'd like to introduce our- 
selves. We were hired by the hos- 
pital a couple of years ago. A coop- 
erative, double-blind study per- 

formed by the Department of 
Housekeeping at Hahnemann and 
St. Agnes revealed that patient 
charts will, in fact, collect dust if 
left in the same place for long per- 
iods of time. This dust is a health 
hazard to both employees and pa- 
tients because it is carried by air 
currents to the upper airways 
where it incites the J-receptors 
and causes temporary laryngotra- 
cheal spasm. That's where we 
come in. Our job is to rotate the 
charts. If it's on a table, we put it 
in the chart cart. If it's in the chart 
cart, we move it behind the com- 
puter. And we never let it sit in 
the chart rack. Too much dust. So 
next time you can't find a pa- 
tient's chart, don't yell at the ward 
clerk. Ask us. We are

Well, It's been a busy four years here at the Big H, and 
we've all learned (hopefully) a lot about medicine, sur- 
gery, etc. But how many of you remember the grounding 
of the Soviet submarine in Swedish waters? That happened while 
we were studying for our second gross anatomy final. Or how about 
the bombing of the American Embassy in Beirut? Many of us were 
deeply entrenched in our third year rotations at that time. Those of 
you who kept up with what went on in the world (e.g., those who 
took a newspaper to class) can use this section as a fond (or not so 
fond) reminder of important world and national events during the 
past four years at Hahnemann. For the rest of you, here's what you 

A)BOSTON, Mass — The moon passes through 
several phases of its eclipse early July 17, 1981,

shooting the President and three others. 
Claiming that he did it to attract the attention 
of actress Jodie Foster, Hinckley was later 
declared innocent by reason of insanity. 

OSTOCKHOLM, Sweden — A Swedish security

A Time For Rest 

The Class of 1985 has been described 
as a hardworking group of people 
whose only goal in life is their dedi- 
cation to medicine and all that it stands for. 
They've been seen sprinting into the li- 
brary only hours after that final Friday 
exam to catch up on all of the material for 
the next exam a scant six weeks away. No 
vacation or weekend could stop these wor- 
shippers of Hippocratus and Bennett, these 
future saints in scrub suits who unselfishly 
devoted themselves to their never-ending 
quest to learn absolutely everything about 
medicine or perish in the attempt. 
I don't think so. 

At least not the Class of 1985 that I've 
come to know over the past four years. Yes, 
we studied hard for our exams, worked as- 
siduously while on rotations, and even 
spent some free time flipping through a 
journal or two. But while it was important 
to develop our basic science and clinical 
skills, it was equally as important to devel- 
op socially and to grow as people. Our class 
realized this and managed to find a lot of 
time to just have fun. Here then is the real 
Class of 1985. 

I think I better get out of here

Special Thanks 

To A Special Friend 

When we look back on the 
past four years, the Class of 
1985 will have many fond 
memories. Not the least of these re- 
membrances will be the acquaint- 
ances that we have made at Hahne- 
mann. And once in a great while, we 
are introduced to someone so unique 
as to never be forgotten. 

One such individual is Arliss An- 
cell "Bud" Hefflin, our mentor, over- 
seer, and close friend. There is prob- 
ably no single person so student ori- 
ented, so interested in student affairs 
as Bud. 

A six-year veteran of the Hahne- 
mann system, Bud has served innu- 
merable functions at the University 
for administration, faculty, and the 
student body. He has been instru- 
mental in the organization and su- 
pervision of the annual food drives

for the poverty stricken. Bud annually directs ticket sales 
for many Hahnemann events including the Blue and Gold 
Ball and Hahnemann Night at the Phillies Game. He also 
encourages participation in the numerous University blood 
drives, as well as acting as salesman for the Geary Lobby art 
gallery. Finally, he has worked on numerous occasions with 
our yearbook staff. 

On a more personal note, Bud provides us with direction 
when we get lost, both with the Hahnemann floor plan and 
with our lives. He acts as a mediator for conflicts between 
various groups of students or individuals. Bud is someone to 
whom we can voice our opinions and always be greeted with 
sound empathic advice. He has been known to put his job 
on the line, standing up for students when he felt they were 
right and deserved a break. 

Not all of us have had a chance to become acquainted 
with Bud. He has, however, been a large part of all of our 
lives, whether it's a "hello" when we enter the lobby door in 
the morning, or a "you're not allowed to eat in the lobby, 
can't you read the signs" at lunchtime. Whatever the rela- 
tionship, one thing is for certain: we will never forget him. 

With all of our love and appreciation, THANK YOU,

Linus Pauling 

On February 26, 1984, Hahnemann University recognized both 
Dr. Linus Pauling and Dr. Arthur Sackler with honorary doctorate 
degrees. Sackler had been asked to speak at graduation in 1984. He 
was unable to attend and requested instead that the University 
honor Pauling for his 83rd birthday. It was then that Hahnemann 
decided to honor both men. 

Linus Pauling was born Feburary 28, 1901. He received his PhD 
in 1925 and the Cal. Institute of Technology. Pauling is the only 
individual to win two unshared Nobel prizes. The first was in 
Chemistry in 1954 for his contributions in elucidating the chemical 
bond. The second was in 1962 
when he won the Nobel peace 
prize for his opposition to nu- 
clear proliferation. In Paul- 
ing's later years, his interest 
has centered on medical is- 
sues. He and Harvey Itano 
demonstrated that sickle cell 
anemia is a hereditary molec- 
ular disease. More recently, 
Pauling has advocated the 
use of mega-doses of vitamin 
C as prophylaxis for the com- 
mon cold.

Each year, Hahnemann University spon- 
sors the Bed Race, which is held every 
spring at 17th and Wood Sts. The contes- 
tants who enter can race either decorated 
beds, stretchers, or wheelchairs. Each group 
who races has a sponsor who supplies the 
financial backing for the contestant. 
The event usually receives coverage from 
local television 
stations and 
newspapers. The 
culmination of 
the day is a party 
celebrating the 
survival of the 
contestants. The 
proceeds from 
both the race and 
the party go to- 
ward the Emer- 
gency Student

Class Of '88: New Kids In Town 

Hahnemann's doors opened to the 
Class of '88 on August 23, 1984. 
All the freshman were wined and 
dined (more like beered and hotdogged) 
for four days. "Hey, I like Medical School" 
was the joyous acclaim. Then classes start- 
ed and we all wondered whether this was 
what we waited in line for. On the first day 
of Anatomy lab, all were optimistic: "It 
doesn't smell so bad, I'm not grossed out." 
Well, the days turned to weeks and sud- 
denly, the first set of exams were days 
away and it seemed as though no one else 
had it so bad. 

Certain things in the first year have 
been the same for more years than most of 
us in the First Year class have been alive 
and we will be very old before they change. 
The anatomy lab is one example. There 
are 180 students in two rooms working on 
36 bodies. Every year, they have to haul 
off a cadaver because it's so disgusting, no 
one will go near it (right table 3?). Dr. 
Kennedy never remembers our names, Dr. 
Rubertone trys to explain the ANS (we'll 
never understand), and Dr. Meyer always 
smells like breath mints (how does he do 

The rumor mill is another tradition at 
Hahnemann. Who can forget these classic 
rumors: "I heard that 20 people failed Bio- 
chem"; "Dr. Eurell is pregnant"; "The 
Psych Department hates the second year 
students"; "Ten people had over 95', aver- 
ages in Anatomy and only two got hon- 

ors!" But the all-time classic rumor, heard 
the night before the Biochem final (on 
which we needed a 78.5' < to pass with a 
65'V ), was relayed by a second year student 
who approached us with these ominous 
words: "If you think this is bad, just wait 
till the second semester." 

How many classes have sat through Dr. 
Angstadt's amino acid lectures and Dr. 
Baggot's terrific laughing? Does Dr. Blu- 
menstein always manage to befriend the 
whole class on the day of the final? If the 
Biochem department required every stu- 
dent to identify Dr. Gillespie, how many 
could do it? Who can forget that silly lim- 
erick Dr. Belmont told us that a young 
patient of his couldn't forget: "Good, bet- 
ter, best. Never let it rest. Till good's bet- 
ter and better's best." 

It may not be the same old thing every 
year but every class has its own personal- 
ity and the Class of '88 is no slouch in that 
category. The class cocktail party at Matt 
Finnegan's house was a huge success. Ev- 
eryone came and had a great time with 
people still dancing at 3:30 the next morn- 
ing. This class loves a party. They also love 
Doc's on Thursday nights, late night poker 
games, Atlantic City, Chinese food, and 
cake fights at the Khyber Pass. Even for 
the Histo-bowl (live from Hahnemann's 
TV studio) this class showed their unique 
spirit. We may be "the new kids in town", 
but we showed that we belong.

Class Of '87: At The Halfway Point 

The second year initially seemed 
somewhat like the first. The long 
hours spent in lectures continued, 
yet slowly the material began to build upon 
the knowledge amassed in previous semes- 
ters. As the information had more readily 
apparent clinical relevance, it grew more in- 

In the Introduction to Clinical Medicine 
course, we learned how to recognize the var- 
ious disease processes that we studied in Pa- 
thology. We began practicing on one an- 
other the techniques of physical examina- 
tion. We prepared for the third year loom- 
ing on the horizon. Enthusiasm mixed with 
apprehension as we pondered the day when, 
dressed in our white jackets, we arm our- 
selves with opthalmoscopes, penlights, and 
reflex hammers and brace ourselves for our 
entry into the world of real patients. 

Mark Tecce, sophomore class president, 
sums it up: "Second year demarcates the 
border that we have all longed to cross. Ap- 
plication, not acquisition, is now the chal- 
lenge we welcome with great anticipation."

Class Of '86: The Next Generation 

It is shortly before 6:30 a.m. on a 
humid June morning in Philadel- 
phia. A few young men and women 
in white jackets stumble up Broad 
Street toward Hahnemann Universi- 
ty, groggy and confused. Few of them 
are accustomed to being out this early, 
unless of course they had been up all 
night studying or, more probably, 
drinking. Today, though, they are not 
suffering from a hangover (unless one 
considers the mental fog which settled 
in after the academic bender which 
was the National Board examination). 

Other colleagues of theirs repeat the 
same ritual in strange, far-flung 
places: Monmouth, N.J., Sayre, Pa., 
South Philadelphia. For all of them, it 
is to be an initiation into a new way of 
life — that of a junior medical student 
on his first clinical rotation. For these 
early risers, that first rotation is to be 
surgery. No careful testing of the wa- 
ters of medical education for this 
bunch. Into the pool! Splash! Gurgle. 

Others of their class began in other 
disciplines: Internal medicine ("Just a 
little pinch ..."), pediatrics ("Ow! 

The little monster bit me!"), psychia- 
try ("Very inappropriate, Mr. Jones; 
you're supposed to do that in the 
bathroom."), or Ob-Gyn ("Yes. A po- 

These junior medical students are 
the Class of '86. They have been called 
"The Next Generation." They have 
watched the class ahead of them brave 
a year of extremes. On one hand, the 
final year of medical school has been 
called by health professions pundits 
"the biggest academic breeze since 
kindergarten." On the other, the sen- 
iors must contend with finding a job 
through a mechanism that they have 
been assured is decrepit and riddled 
with graft. They were justifiably terri- 
fied. But the next generation is poised 
and ready to go forth. 

But just who are these students? 
Medicine watchers are at a loss to 
characterize the Hahnemann class of 
'86. The list of adjectives applied to 
them is long and contradictory: "qui- 
et," "friendly," "cheerful," "imma- 
ture," "unstable," "sullen," "aggres- 
sive," "cooperative," "often absent," 

"energetic," and a host of others. 
Those who know them agree on one 
thing, however: Their appearance is 
always "professional." 

It is perhaps best to concede that 
generalities cannot describe this di- 
verse group. The photographs on 
these pages give an incomplete and 
slanted view at best. Certainly, leisure 
time is over-represented. 

The students in the Class of '86 
have had to make some difficult deci- 
sions in the past year. What do I do? 
Where do I go? Do I use a "change" 
form or a "trade" form or some other 
form of form? 

Certainly these students did not 
foresee all of the challenges of the ju- 
nior year of medical school. They all 
knew that they would have to work 
hard, but few likely anticipated the 
difficult intricacies of relating to pa- 
tients and colleagues. But it seems 
now that even the unforeseen chal- 
lenges can be met. 

On to senior year and beyond! 

Members of the Class of '86 sublimate the psychic pain of their 
hideous deformities by entering (and winning) the annual bed race

A Time Of Change 

There is no doubt that the past four years have been a time of change for the Class of 1985. 
But Hahnemann itself has changed quite a bit over the past 137 years since its humble 
beginnings as the Homeopathic Medical College of Pennsylvania back in 1848. This 
section first provides a brief look at the Highlights of Hahnemann History since its 
founding. It then takes a pictorial look at the buildings, the departments, and the people 
associated with Hahnemann over the years and examines what has become of them in today's 
modern world. Special thanks to the Archives; Hahnemann University; Philadelphia, Pennsyl- 
vania for providing all of the historical photographs used in this section. 

1848:The Homeopathic Medical College of Penn- 
sylvania is founded by Drs. Constantine Her- 
ing, Jacob Jeanes, and Walter Williamson on 
April 8. Fifteen students pay $140.00 each to 
enroll in a two-year course taught by a faculty 
of eight. The College is initially located in a 
couple of rooms in the rear of a building at 229 
Arch St. (renumbered later to 635 Arch 
Street). This building was later occupied by 
the new female medical college, now known as 
the Medical College of Pennsylvania. 

1849: The College moves to roomier accomadations 
on Filbert Street between 11th and 12th 
Streets. The building was designed by Thomas 
U. Walter who is better known for designing 
the wings and dome of the United States Capi- 
tol in Washington, D.C. Although later torn 
down to make room for the Reading Railroad 
Terminal, this was to be the site of Hahne- 
mann for the next 37 years. 

1852: The first Homeopathic Hospital of Pennsylva- 
nia opens at 24th and Chestnut Streets but 
closes two years later due to financial difficul- 

1865: The faculty votes to allow women to sit out- 
side the lecture halls and listen, but not to 
enroll as students. 

1867:The majority stockholder of the College, Dr. 
Lippe, abolishes the Chair of Special Pathol- 
ogy. This causes Dr. Hering and many of his 
associates to resign from the faculty. They se-

Samuel Hahnemann 

The years that witnessed the birth of a new nation, which 
was destined to have a major impact upon the affairs of an 
entire world, saw also the birth of a new concept of illness 
which would have an important and lasting effect upon medi- 
cine. The father of this concept was Samuel Hahnemann. 

Born in 1755 in Meissen, Germany, Hahnemann received the 
best medical education that was available — at Leipzig and 
Erlangen, but even in his student days he was dissatisfied 
with the doctrines and practices of his professors. His early 
experiences in practice confirmed his mistrust in the prevail- 
ing methods of treating the sick, which relied basically on the 
assumption that disease was a force which must be opposed by 
an equal and greater force. The treatment generally employed 
was forceful indeed — blood letting, violent purging, induced 
vomiting, prescriptions with twenty or more ingredients, and 
corporal punishment for the insane and delirious. Into this 
chaos of irrationality Hahnemann introduced his "Organon of 
the Art of Healing," which was based on the thesis that the 
body has naturally endowed powers of combatting disease, 
and that the objective of treatment should be to stimulate 
these natural mechanisms. His outlined principles were four: 

1) The testing of drugs on healthy human beings 

2) The single remedy 

3) The minimum dose that will cure 

4) Similia similibus curantur — likes are treated by likes 
The first three of these principles are now generally accepted 
as good medical practice. Hahnemann thus led a sweeping 
reform of medical practice. As have so many reformers, he 
swung far to the opposite extreme and the "school of homeop- 
athy", as his precepts came to be known, gave way in time 
before the advances of scientific medicine. If he was in error, 
his was a vastly safer error than that of his contemporaries. 
He demonstrated the dictum, primum non nocere — if you 
can do the patient no good, at least do him no harm. 

A pioneer, reaching for rationality in medical practice, he 
pointed directions which have become eminently significant 
and for this he deserves honor. This school honors him by 
bearing his name.

The Hahnemann Department of Anatomy is the possessor 
of the most renonwned specimen of anatomical dissection of 
its type known to medicine. The specimen, called "Harriet", is 
a complete dissection of the human cerebro-spinal nervous 
system by Dr. Rufus B. Weaver. 

Harriet was a maid employed by Dr. Weaver. For years, she 
suffered from tuberculosis and before she died, she requested 
that her body be used to benefit science. This was a benevo- 
lent gesture, for in those days when superstition reigned, 
anatomists had difficulty in obtaining cadavers for study and 
dissection. Therefore, when Harriet Cole passed away at age 
35 in 1887, Dr. Weaver began his dissection. He began by 
injecting the body with zinc chloride on April 9, 1888. By the 
end of June, 1888, the dissection was complete and all that 
remained was the mounting of the specimen. This was accom- 
plished by supporting each individual nerve by small pins at a 
distance of a quarter of an inch from the board. Thus, on 
September 15, 1888, the specimen was finally complete. Over 
five months, 8-10 hours daily, had been required for comple- 
tion of the task. 

At the Colombian World's Fair in Chicago in 1893, this 
dissection received a gold medal symbolic of the Premium 
Scientific Award. It may be seen today in the Raymond C. 
Truex Museum of the Department of Anatomy on the 12th 
floor of the New College Building.

This drawing (below) by Theodore Geiger in 
1853 is the only interior picture or drawing of 
the old Filbert St. College (now the location of 
the Reading Terminal). It depicts a semi-cir- 
cular amphitheatre in which the students 
were taught Anatomy, Surgery, and Obstetrics. 
The lecture stand in the middle revolved on a 
pivot. The skeletons hung at either side and 
were close to students in the lower few rows. 
During times of waiting before lecture, the stu- 
dents "commenced to take grotesque liberties 
with those relics of departed humanity." There 
was also a much larger principal lecture room 

which seated 600 and was used to teach Chemis- 
try, Materia Medica, Physiology, Practice, and 
Medical Jurisprudence. Its counterpart today 
would be Geary Auditorium (above), which, 
though designed and equipped much differently, 
is still used to teach the basic science courses of 
the first few years of medical school. One final 
note is that in 1875, a locked railing was placed in 
front of the rostrum to protect it from the ap- 
proach of students, and to which only the faculty 
had keys. This feature was lost in future class- 
room designs, much to the disappointment of to- 
day's lecturers. 

Despite extensive research, we were unable to 
obtain further information about this photo of the 
Hering Clinical Laboratory in 1918 (below). 

It was here that medical students learned to per- 
form gram stains, count white cells, prepare histo- 
logic microscope slides, etc. Many, if not all, of 
these tasks are now performed by specially 
trained lab technicians, who free today's physi- 
cian to concentrate on interpreting the lab data 
and using it to aid him in the management of his 
patients. Medical students still attend laboratory 
classes in microbiology, histology, physiology, and 
pathology, but these are used more as educational 
tools to further solidify in their minds a fact men- 
tioned in lecture during the course.

The photo below was taken in 1892 and 
depicts the Recreation Room of the 
Broad Street Medical College. This room 
was located in the southeast corner of the 
basement and was filled with a piano, 
games, and magazines. It was built in con- 
junction with the YMCA of Philadelphia 
and was designed to provide "... a pleasant 
room where the students might spend their 
evenings and spare hours, and throw around 
them those moral and religious influences 
which will elevate and refine them." It was 
further said that "the College boys enter- 
tained their generous guests with piano mu- 
sic, college glees, and other songs." Today, 
the recreation room (right) is located 
next to Geary Auditorium and includes a 

pool table, foosball table, color televi- 
sion, jukebox, and various video game. It 
also serves as the scene of the traditional 
Friday afternoon beer parties in which 
the students use other types of influences 
to elevate and refine them. 

Whether it's in the Broad Street Medi- 
cal College in 1893, or in New College 
Building in 1985, the Gross Anatomy 
dissecting lab has been virtually un- 
changed by 92 years of progress. Small 

groups of students still spend hours and 
hours dissecting their cadavers and 
searching (usually in vein) (sorry) for an 
anatomical part. And of course, the 
smells of the Gross Anatomy lab, 
while perhaps changing in their quality, 
are still as malodorous as ever.

The Hahneman Hospital 

Pharmacy of 1985 is located in the 
same place that it was in 1954 — in 
the basement. The functions of the 
pharmacy of today vary very little 
from those in 1954, the major dif- 
ferences being in the moderniza- 
tion of packing techniques (i.e., 
pre-packaged, pre-counted pills) 
and in the increased numbers of 
medicines to understand and dis- 
tribute. There is one noteworthy 
incident of historical importance 
which took place in this pharmacy. 

In 1959, Hahnemann pharmacist Joseph 
D'Ambola substituted a generic drug for 
that prescribed by a physician. This action, 
illegal in 1959, touched off a court case 
which eventually ruled in favor of D'Am- 
bola and led to legislation by the Pennsyl- 
vania State Board of Pharmacy permitting 
hospital pharmacies "to dispense a make of 
drug other than that prescribed so long as it 
is generically or chemically equivalent." 
This helped to reduce the costs of drugs to 
hospital patients. 

In the photo below is seen the "horizontal fluroscopic 
and stereoscopic table and tubestant", circa 1915. Back 
then, this was the only type of machine available in the just 
beginning field of radiology, today, of course, this device has 
been modernized and is joined by the nuclear scanner, the 
ultra-sound machine, the CT scanner (left), and soon, Mag- 
netic Resonance Imaging (NMR). Of note in Hahnemann 
history is that the first school of X-ray technology was found- 
ed here in 1921 by Arthur Morgan. Also, Dr. Frank Benson's 
Department of Radium Therapy, established in 1920, and the 

Emery laboratory of 
Experimental Radiolo- 
gy constituted the first 
program in Philadel- 
phia for the study of ra- 
diation effects on can-

The photo below depicts the men's 
surgical ward, circa 1906. The major 
change in the housing of patients has 
been the trend away from a ward-type 
setting in which large numbers of pa- 
tients shared one large, open room. 
While harder on the feet of physicians 
making rounds, most hospitals today 
keep their patients in private and semi- 
private rooms. These were reserved for 
more opulent patients at the turn of the 
century. The other advantages of today's 
hospital room (left) (electric bed, phone, 
private T.V.) are more a function of the 
modern world. 

The photo below is from the year 1900 and shows a group of 
young medical students (all men) being taught the correct 
method to perform the abdomenal exam by Dr. Oliver Sloan 
Haines. At that time, clinical instruction was carried out in 
a series of "clinics". The class was divided into sections with 
clinics held daily. One month, one of these sections attended 
the eye and ear clinic, a second attended the gynecological 
clinic, a third went to surgical clinic, and a fourth section 
attended general medical clinic. This latter clinic was subdi- 
vided into four sub-sections — general medicine, diseases of 
the heart and lungs, dermatology, and neurology. The ar- 
rangement was such that each student was brought face to 
face with hundreds of cases under the direction of several 
clinical teachers. He ws required to examine patients, apply 
instruments of diagnosis, perform operations, apply dressings, 
prescribe medicines, and watch the progress of patients. Be- 
sides these smaller clinics, once a week clinics in both medi- 
cine and surgery were held for the whole class. All of this took 
place in the third year of a three-year curriculum. The four- 
year curriculum was not made mandatory until 1894. 

Today (right), clinical teaching is still done in small 
groups at the bedside. The old "clinics" have been replaced by 
"rotations". The required rotations during 3rd year are now 
general medicine, surgery, obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics, 
and psychiatry. Fourth year rotations are designed for the 

student to choose whatever interests him 
with the only requirements being ambu- 
latory, an academic, and a sub-intern- 
ship. The source of teaching is not limit- 
ed to the "attending" and is based on a 
hierarchy system of attending/residen- 
t/intern/4th year student/3rd year stu- 
dent in which those with more exper- 
ience pass on what they know to others. 

Medic June 6, 1985 

The picture below shows the Surgical Am- 
phitheatre in 1899. This two-story classroom 
had a seating capacity of 400 and was located in 
the Elkins Building (now the site of the Bobst 
Building). The room was lighted by sky at day, 
and by incandescent electric and gas light by 
night. Note that masks and gowns were not 
used, the basins of "sterile" water for hand- 
washing, and the ether being applied by the 
anesthetist. Surgical and anesthetic techniques 
today, of course, are much improved. But per- 
haps the most notable change is the strict use 
of antiseptic technique with everything and 
everybody in the room covered with layers of 
surgical drapes. This modern picture also gives 
an example of the view of surgical procedures 
as experienced by the medical student. 

This is a 1928 photo depicting the 
ward nursery (right) in which the 
newborns were packaged in portable 
containers of ten for easy nursing care. 
It should be mentioned that mothers 
with money could procure a private 
bassinet for their infant. In contrast, 
the neonatal intensive care unit 
(above) was not even available twenty 
much less fifty years ago. Premature 
babies and neonates with once fatal 
disorders are now kept alive with all 
of the modern equiptment now avail- 
able. But routine deliveries are still 
performed with the results now dis- 
played behind glass.

These two views depict the changes seen when 
looking north at the west side of 15th Street 
between 1966 and 1985. The building on the far 
left in both pictures is the Belief Building, which 
was formerly called the Schaff Building. The res- 
taurant on the corner was called Benny's Deli- 
catessin and was the place to eat lunch. Its major 
competition was just up the street and was called 
Abe's Delicatessin. Most of the remainder of the 
block between Spring, Vine, 15th, and 16th 
Streets was filled with townhouses which were 
lived in by many of the Hahnemann students and 
faculty. Today, this has been replaced with a 
much less useful and much more expensive park- 
ing lot. But that's progress. 



These two views are taken looking north at 
the east side of 15th St. and show changes 
that have taken place on the site between the 
1950's and today. Note that the Klahr Building 
(built in 1938) is seen in both photos. There 
actually was an auditorium back then (straight 
ahead as you entered) and the building also 
housed the library and Dean's offices from 
1963-1973. Today, its main function seems to 
be as a location for the Provident bank ma- 
chine. Further north is seen the old 15th St. 
Hospital (built in 1890) which was later con- 
verted into the medical school when the Broad 
St. Hospital was completed in 1928. It contin- 
ued in this function until the New College 
Building (right) was completed in 1973. Note 
the trolley tracks and overhead power lines.

World Leaders 

President's Message 

You are entering the field of medicine at a time of 
great change. The medical profession and its insti- 
tutions are caught in a conflict between conscience 
and the pocketbook, between the growing needs and expec- 
tations of an aging and needy population and limited finan- 
cial resources. 

In your lifetime, ethics will fast become far more than an 
exotic and arcane philosophical issue, but rather part of your 
daily decision making, involving the practice of medicine 
and your income, the health of the patient and the survival 
of the hospital with which you are connected. The prolifera- 
tion of hospital ethics committees and conferences on ethics 
illustrates the major role ethics already has assumed in the 
practice of medicine. 

At Hahnemann, we are proud to be the first university 
hospital in the Delaware Valley to have established an Eth- 
ics Committee. Physicians, medical students, nurses, law- 
yers, laypersons, and professional ethicists deal with re- 
search, teaching, and clinical issues which arise in actual 
cases at our hospital. Any member of a health care team, the 
patient, or the family, may seek the Committee's guidance. 
While the Committee's opinion is an advisory one, its work 
has been well received. 

Issues addressed by the Committee range from who makes 
decisions for incompetent patients and how those decisions 
are made to dealing with the prolongation of life by the use 
of medical technology, including artificial means of feeding. 
To this set of issues, a new element has been added. We in 
the medical profession are being forced to become financial 
thinkers because of a new and revolutionary financial reim- 
bursement system known as the prospective payment sys- 
tem or DRG's. Under this system, hospitals are reimbursed 
on a fixed fee schedule according to the actual cost for the 
patient. This puts pressure on all of us to shorten the length 
of the patient's hospitalization. 

The ethical issues arise when the patient's needs and the 
financial stability of the institution are. measured against 

each other. Questions arise such as: Is it unethical to dis- 
charge a patient too early? Will efforts to discharge patients 
as soon as possible lead not only to inappropriate medical 
behavior but to unethical conduct as well? How are compet- 
ing interests --- the patients, the hospital's, and society's — 

The day may come when the community — the partici- 
pants in the democratic process — will take these life-and- 
death decisions out of the hands of the elite few (the doctors, 
the lawyers, the clergy, and the ethics committees) and 
make their own decisions. Experiments at town meetings in 
Oregon and other places may be the vanguard of a move- 
ment in that direction. 

Medical ethics always have been paramount, as expressed 
in the Hippocratic Oath you are about to take. The question 
of how to care for people, sick and well, in a world with ever 
expanding technology but limited resources, has no easy 
answers. Traditionally, the patient's needs have been put 
ahead of the needs of the hospital. Clearly we are heading 
for a drastic change. 

In the final analysis, it is the ethics of society as a whole 
that will determine the availability and quality of health 
care in this country in the coming years. Definition of health 
care strictly as a business venture is unacceptable if society 
holds accessibility to health care to be a basic right. Con- 
versely, if society accepts health care as a business venture 
only, provision of health care on the bacis of ability to pay 
will become acceptable and even expected behavior. If soci- 
ety follows the second direction, you as physicians will find 
yourselves in a moral delemma. You will have to solve the 
obvious conflict between acting both as the patient's advo- 
cate and as a corporate employee or investor in a for-profit 
health care system who may refuse service to the indigent, 
the uninsured or the under-insured. I hope that health care 
will always be more than a business. 

The clash between traditional ethics and the new econom- 
ics of health is putting the medical profession in America to 
the test. Good luck and good ethics in meeting this new

World Leaders 

The Class Of 1985: 


One of the major joys and satisfactions of a Dean of 
Medicine comes at the time of graduation, when 
another class of bright, dedicated, competent, and 
enthusiastic new physicians are introduced to the medical 
world. This is the forging of yet another link in the timeless 
chain of tradition in a world-wide professional brotherhood/ 
sisterhood. Ours is a proud profession which knows no bor- 
ders nor limits, and demands the highest levels of profes- 
sionalism, ethics, morality, service, tolerance, and, above all, 
humanity. Class of 1985, welcome to this profession and its 
traditions, and vow to uphold them. 

Our School of Medicine takes special pride in the Class of 
1985. Like the classes which have preceded you (and those 
that will follow you), you are indeed unique. You are a class 
of graduates in a time of academic and professional change. 
You have helped shape and direct some of these contempo- 
rary changes as students. As newly-minted professionals, 
you will also enjoy central and important roles in future 
developments in both medicine and society. 

You are not unaware of change. When you first arrived at 
Hahnemann University, you faced a radical realignment in 
curriculum, differing faculty perspectives for your perfor- 
mance, and an institution in metamorphosis. In this respect, 
you are not unlike the members of a charter class of a newly- 
developed school. You have needed to be flexible, adaptable, 
and most of all, participatory. You have been all of these 
things — and more. 

At times of institutional ambiguity or uncertainty, you 
responded by providing open, valuable dialogue. (Some of 
this was undeniably controversial, but aren't you, after all, 

human?) You were effective and articulate in expressing 
your opinions and concerns relating to the newly-fashioned 
curricular programs and their subsequent management and 
implementation. You helped weave student perspectives 
into the very fabric of the University. You have developed 
an attitude of student cooperation and esprit de corps both 
within the class as well as other segments of the entire 
student body. You have exhibited world-beating leadership 
by your persistent insistence that the School's internal re- 
sponses to a variety of issues be valuable and realistic. Un- 
doubtedly, you will direct your attention and resolution to 
potential problems of the future in the same manner, and 
with the same vigor. 

Class of 1985, you are truly world-beaters and we are 
desparately proud of you. Go get 'em, champions!

The State Of Education At HU 

In today's world, the job of teacher is not always looked upon favorably, as in "those who 
can't do ... " But these men and women are necessary to start the careers of most of the 
people in America. The Class of 1985 has not always agreed with everything our professors 
have told us. However, we do realize that we are indebted to those with more experience than 
us. Indeed, we would not be graduating today if our professors had not taken time out from 
their busy research activities and clinical practices to spend some time teaching us. For all of 
that, we thank you.

Not Just Brains 

The Class Of '85 Flexes Its Muscles 

This section is in answer to 
those who may have thought 
that the only exercise the Class 
of '85 received was either carrying 
books home from the bookstore or lift- 
ing patient charts on the floors. As you 
will see on these pages, we were quite 
athletic while at Hahnemann. 

After class, many of us would head to 
the YMCA where we could be found 
playing squash or racketball, shooting a 
basketball, swimming in the pool, lift- 
ing in the weight room, or working out 
at Nautilus. Others ran several miles a 
day along the Schulkyll River by 
boathouse row. Speaking of boathouse 
row, that was also the site of many pick- 
up basketball games on Saturday morn- 
ings. We were also very involved with 
intramural sports sponsored by Hahne- 
mann which included basketball, vol- 
leyball, Softball, and the annual racket- 
ball tournament. And many of us 
played for the Hahnemann blue and 
gold as they competed against other 

professional schools in the Philadel- 
phia area in such sports as basketball, 
soccer, and rugby. 

Outside of Hahnemann, our class 
could be found on the ski slopes, the 
fishing piers, the golf courses, the ten- 
nis courts, and the campgrounds. At 
class picnics, frisbee and softball were 
the games of choice, although the after- 
game barbecue was perhaps the most 
popular sport of all. And finally, let us 
not forget the athlete's athlete, that 
coniesseur of sport, the gameroom war- 
rior. Whether making a difficult carom 
shot on the pool table, scoring a key 
goal in foosball, or saving the Earth in 
Missile Command, these beer-party 
jocks were just as competitive. 

The final two pages of this section 
present a retrospective of the world in 
sports during the past four years. Any 
resemblance between these photos of 
great athletes in action and members of 
our class is both unintended and impos-

One continuing debate in the field of medicine is how 
much of this book should be read. Certainly much time and 
energy has been devoted to this question; indeed, certain 
medical authorities have been known to change reading 
assignments in mid-stream. In the final analysis, this 
small-printed wonder is the choice for those whose goal it 
is to learn medicine. Unfortunately, as luck would have it, 
the text seems to be acquired most often at the time when 
one is trying to learn — if only to quickly forget — such 
unrelated topics as anatomy, biochemistry, etc. Thus, 
many are concerned with whether or not to purchase the 
single volume or the two-volume edition. This choice is 
most likely to be governed by the weight of the door which 
said volume(s) is to be propping open.

HISTOLOGY by Peter S. Amenta BS, MS, PhD;

Imagine, if you will, that you are a fried egg interdigitat- 
ing with others like yourself — only you are the size of a 
pinhead and you and your friends are connected over an 
area the size of, say, a human body. "Far out!" you say. No, 
you are not in the twilight zone. Nor is this an exercise 
spawned from collected "Toward More Picturesque 
Speech" collumns. This, friends, is histology made deli- 
ciously simple. Dedicated to the premise that short and 
kinky is better than long and boring, this allows you to 
prepare for pathology while allotting you plenty of time to 
learn the "real" freshman fall subjects. Now, stop staring 
through the scope and allow yourself to entwine your fin-

Great American Novel? 

TION by Charles E. Tobin & John J. Jacobs; 
McGraw-Hill Book Co. 282 pages 

One often wonders how anyone can love a book that 
smells of formalin. However, this turns out to be a volume 
designed for reading aloud to those loved ones that have 
lain down to go to sleep. True, the novel has some illogical, 
mysterious parts. But these are offset by completely under- 
standable aspects. The reader, at times, may be led to 
believe that it is himself to which the author is referring. 
All in all, this novel is a truly mind-piercing experience. 

Fun For All 

MEDICAL PRACTICE by John R. Brobeck, ed; Wil- 
liams & Wilkins 1222 pages 

So you want to be a physiologist? Want to learn more about 
the subject to fuel your budding medical career? Best & Tay- 
lor's answer: forget it! This humorous edition effectively 
shows us that there are lighter sides to understanding human 
physiology. Though the message will take several weeks to 
sink in for some, the more astute reader will realize right away 
that the incomprehensible diagrams, rambling text, and ridic- 
ulously inadequate index are all in fun. Such mumbo-jumbo is 
just the material one needs to fully appreciate the full-fledged 
hilarity of a lecture series in physiology. This is entertain- 
ment at its best! 

A Cutting Review 

Hardy; J.B. Lipincott Company 1338 pages 

"Bah! Humbug! You should have looked it up in Schwartz!" 
rants your surgical attending as sweat falls from your brow 
into the sterile field. True, the budding orthopod may require 
the macho image a high-powered manual can provide. But if 
your aspirations lie more toward ambulatory, pediatrics, 
spousehood, or Baby Doc U., Dr. Hardy may be your man. 
Written in consultation with the staff of USA Today, this 
volume will give you pictures, facts, and figures that will hold 
your interest as much as that idyllic residency brochure. Who 
cares how many lymph nodes drain the breast anyway? 


The book review editor, Stan Sack, wanted to review a 
textbook of psychiatry. Unfortunately, none of the students 
in the Class of 1985 knew where one could be located. We 
apologize for any inconvenience this omission may have 
caused anyone.

The Academy Awards 

The Freshman Follies By The Class Of '85 

In May, 1982, the Class of 1985 
freshman follies opened on the 
stage of the Geary Theatre at 
15th and Vine with a special Friday 
afternoon matinee performance. 
The show offered an opportunity 
for the freshman class to poke fun 
at, mimic, and otherwise ridicule 
both the college and the faculty 
which had tortured them through- 
out the year. The theme of the 
show was the academy awards and 
featured four extended skits (repre- 
senting the year's four best mov- 
ies), various special awards, songs, 
and commercials. All of these were 
written and performed by members 
of the class. 

There was a buzz of anticipation 
prior to the show and Geary The- 
atre was filled to capacity with a 
standing room only crowd. The 
show opened with a speech by 
President Reagan (Lee Fleischer) 
who gave a stirring welcome to the 
audience. This was followed by the 
introduction of the hosts for the 
show, Joe Caccione and Randy 
Peairs. Both Peairs and Caccione 
seemed a trifle nervous when called 
upon to announce awards and in- 
troduce nominated movies and 
songs, but overall did a commend- 
able job in roles that required 
much time on stage. 



The first of the four nominated 
movies was the Wizard of Hahne- 
mann, featuring Alexis Harvey as 
Dorothy, Neil Clark in a very real- 
istic performance as Toto, Lance 
Warhold as Dr. Kennedy (who 
wanted to stop smoking), Sheldon 
Linn as Dr. Saluk (who wanted 
hair), Jon Parmet as Dr. Angela- 
kos, Sheila Magoon as Dr. Kraft- 
Schreyer (winged monkey), Laurie 
Kardon as Dr. Kahlia (the good 
witch), Joanne Nelson as Dr. Am- 
bromovage (the wicked witch), and 
Gary Okum as Dr. Baggot (the Wiz- 
ard). Written by Mark Resciniti 
and Walter Pierce, "The Wizard" 
was very well done and flowed 
smoothly from beginning (in which 


Dr. Kahlia pranced about on stage 
welcoming Dorothy to Hahne- 
mann) to end (where Dr. Ambro- 
movage was digested by a bucket of 
gastric juices thrown by Dorothy). 
The second nominated movie 
was One Flew Over the Cuck- 
oo's Nest which was written and 
starred in by Mark Trombetta (as 
Dr. Belmont). It offered a bizarre 
look at the Psychiatry department 
and featured Mark Cohen, Lance 
Warhold, Ray Lupkas (typecast as 
Dr. Langman), and Steve Jones as 
Psychiatry professors. This skit 
was not for everyone, but if you 
enjoyed men eating feces and being 
splashed by urine, you would have 
liked this movie. 


Medic June 6, 1985 

The Freshman year with danger fraught, 
Strove to cram in an awful lot. 
But college geniuses with confidence thought 
Twill be easy with the Department of 

And so, with orientation nearly complete, 
To Geary we went to take a seat. 
There we were, some of the nation's elite, 
About to be hammered by Gross Anatomy. 

The first sight for our eager, red eyes 
Was a Southern gent of medium size. 
A slavedriver in professor's disguise 
Was the chairman of Gross Anatomy. 

He lay on the stage and tried to double 
For an alligator. The class did chuckle. 
I knew right then we were in for trouble 
From the Department of Gross Anatomy. 

His rapid-fire lecture was so annoyin' 
That when he was one, I felt great joy an' 
Then I met Dr. Haroian 
Of the Department of Gross Anatomy. 

His head and face had a black, hairy crop, 
Save for the bald spot way up on top. 
In romance, I hear he was kind of a flop. 
That's why he liked lab in Gross Anatomy. 

The next speaker up was Haroian 's crony, 

A helpful fellow named Rubertone. 

With his numbering system and occasional 

bone, he 
Was good in Gross Anatomy. 

Dr. Kemper, next in our continuing story 
Had a lecture style that made one snore. He 
Wouldn 't be found in the Morning Glory 
Like the rest of the Department of Anatomy. 

And just when it seemed we were doomed to 

be bored, 
Dr. Meyer stepped up and couldn 't be 

For he couldn't escape that microphone cord 
When he lectured on Gross Anatomy. 

These gentlemen concocted exams quite 

And I could see tagging an arm or the brain, 
But who ever heard of the varicose vein 
In a practical on Gross Anatomy. 

Their written exams were never much fun. 

I couldn't decide between 4 or 3-1. 

Then they'd say time's up and I'd be half 

I made good guesses in Gross Anatomy. 

Well, I think that I've criticized the 

department enough. 
But let's face it, the course was naturally 


Star Trek was the third movie and featured the adventures of 
Captain Kirk (Trombetta) and Mr. Spock (Jones) as they landed on 
the planet "Physiologicus" whose only residents were physiology 
professors. Written by Steve Jones and Rick Malamut, it featured 
Laurie Kardon as Dr. Kahlia and Sheldon Linn as Dr. Torres in 
very effective fashion. The skit also introduced Gary Okum as a 
very dour Dr. Snipes. Special kudos go to both Ray Lupkas, for 
compromising his virtue and his manhood as Dr. Angelakos' slave, 
and to Jon Parmet, for his hilarious monologue as E.T. Angelakos. 

Medic June 6, 1985 


The final movie was written by Laurie Kardon and was a spoof 
on The Godfather with Kurt Miller in the title role as Dr. 
Amenta B.S., M.S., Ph.D. It featured a series of Anatomy profes- 
sors played by Lance Warhold (Dr. Kennedy), Vince Quinn (Dr. 
Rubertone), Rick Malamut (Dr. Haroian), Gary Okum (Dr. Mey- 
er), Steve Jones (Dr. Sarphie), and Stan Sack (Dr. DePace) who 
come to ask favors of the beleaguered and bespectacled Amenta. 
It featured four-star performances by all members of the cast 
who showed that they remembered something about Gross 

And there was one aspect that we all did 

The end of Gross Anatomy. 

(To the tune of THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT) 
The phage that is making garbage 
From the host that is hurting the most 
Chromosomes with their funny histones 
That's Entertainment 

Invasion we all find amazin' 

The coat over which we all gloat 

And those genes, well you see what we mean 

That's Entertainment 

Today's RNAase is so totally fine 

On slabs in the labs sits an honest gold mine 

It sends a chill down my spine 

If it's not menigitis 

Then could it be hepatitis? 

Disease, you can catch it with ease 
Vaccinate till the needle you hate 
Just be sure ninety percent is cured 
The world is a phage 
The phage is a world of entertainment. 


Lord, I've got Hahnemann on my mind 

Free time I just can't seem to find 

'Tween lectures and those tests 

My social life's a mess 

Lord I've got Hahnemann on my mind 

Anatomy was not no friend o'mine 

'Cause in that lab, you know the sun don't* 

And many students will say 
I'm in there eight hours a day 
And my test score never gets higher than 69 

Now Biochem was always good to me 

Except for Alexander and Chi'h 

And Baggot and Devlin I guess 

I'll include all the rest 

Another Biochemist I hope I never see 


Now Histo weren't too bad, you know it's true 

But there was so much other work to do 

Bombarded on all sides 

Who had time to look at slides? 

So I went ahead and flunked this course too 


It must be remembered, however, that the freshman 
skits were a musical comedy, and the Geary Theatre crowd 
was regaled by original tunes (reprinted elsewhere in this 
review). The Macrophages (Stan Sack and Rick Mala- 
mut) performed a song and dance tribute to microbiology 
sung to the tune of That's Entertainment. Written by 
Stan Sack, the witty number was a big favorite on the pop 
charts for many hours. The Ballad of Gross Anatomy 
was a country music-like tribute to Gross Anatomy and 
was both written and performed by Rick Malamut doing 
his best Johnny Cash imprsonation. Ambromovage, 
sung (barely) to the tune of Witchy Woman, was an 
expose of everyone's favorite Physiology professor and was 
performed in five different keys by Ray Lupkas, Bob Carr, 
Lance Warhold, Myra Gibson, and Alice Coyle, who could 
not escape detection behind their sunglasses. The final 
song was an original tune, Hahnemann on my Mind, 
which was written and performed by Rick Malamut with 
the whole cast (and sometimes audience) joining in on the 
chorus. It provided an uplifting finish for the show and had 
the crowd on their feet (and heading for the exits). 

The show was competently organized and directed by 
Rick Malamut. Chief technical adviser was Sheila Magoon 
who ably managed the lighting, sound, and scenery. She 
was assisted by Stu Himmelstein, Mark Swartz, and Ray 
Steinheuser. Musical accompaniment was provided by 
Frank Lamm (piano), Jon Parmet (guitar), and Mark Del- 
l'aglio (guitar). All in all, I think the show was well worth 
the price of admission (free). Unfortunately, the show 
closed after one performance due to educational difficulties 
(final exams), but if there's ever a revival, I highly recom- 
mend going to see it. 

A Closer Look At Dean Bennett 

During the summer of '84, there were rumors making 
the rounds which implied that this would be Dr. 
Bennett's last year as Dean of Students. Therefore, 
to honor Dr. Bennett for his four years of service to our class, 
as well as for his many years at Hahnemann, the Medic '85 
has decided to print an in-depth interview with Dr. Bennett. 
We found him in his office on the second floor of New 
College Building. 

Medic: First of all, Dean Bennett, I'd like to know a little bit 
about your childhood and your years prior to Hahnemann. 

Bennett: I was born in Brooklyn, New York, but actually my 
parents lived in Hastings-on-the-Hudson north of New York 
City. And then, when I was about five, we moved to Cleve- 
land, Ohio, in Cleveland Heights. I went through grade school 
there and then we moved to Terre Haute, Indiana. I went to 
high school in Terre Haute and it was there that I got into 
biology. The reason that we moved around so much was that 
my father was a consulting engineer and he would be consul- 
tant for one firm for about three-four years and then move on 
to another project, so we followed him around. In high school, 

I was primarily interested in camping and canoeing and was 
assistant camp director by the time I finished high school and 
was ready to go on to college. Then, in 1935, I went to the 
University of Chicago where I was primarily interested in 
biology. I was admitted to medical school at the University of 
Chicago after three years of college and then received my 
Bachelors' after one year in medical school. This was standard 
practice at that time. It was about then that I met my wife. 
She tells me that the first time I met her was when I was 
boring corks for her in chemistry class. I hate to admit, it, but 
I don't remember that. 

Medic: Boring corks? 

Bennett: You probably don't remember that because you're 
so used to the rubber corks. We had to take regular corks and 
put a hole in them during chemistry class. It was tricky be- 
cause you had to go straight and the cork would break and so 
on. Anyway, we were married in my senior year in medical 
school with special permission from the Dean, since students 
weren't allowed to marry. 

Medic: That was also standard practice at the time? 

Bennett: Yes it was. I finished medical school in 1942, but 
then the war intervened. I was allowed to finish my rotating 
internship, so they didn't take me into the armed forces im- 
mediately. I was interested in internal medicine then. 

Medic: Why did you choose to go into internal medicine? 

Bennett: I think that part of that was the contact with 
people and I was interested in the type of patients that I saw 
within it. I was very patient-oriented. The average doctor 
went into general practice and perhaps I felt that the future 
lay instead in more extensive training. At that time, the gen- 
eral doctor only got one year of training after medical school 
and I just didn't feel that that was going to be adequate. When 
I made my requests to the armed forces in 1943, I asked to do 
internal medicine in France since I spoke french very well. 
Instead, they sent me to the South Pacific as a surgeon, which 
was typical for the army. I was overseas for three years, 
returning to America in 1946, and got out of the armed forces 
in May of that year. When I was discharged, though, there 
were no residency positions available. But, I heard of a new 
type of residency at the Veterans Administration in Chicago, 
the first time that the VA had any medical school residency. I 
enjoyed my three years there and ended up staying on at the 
VA. I was going to leave and go into practice, but one day in 
the emergency room, I discovered that I couldn't bend down 
and that one knee was grossly swollen. Biopsies were done 
and the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis was made. I could 
see disability ahead, so I stayed at the VA and became Assis- 
tant Chief of Medicine. In 1953, I left to become Chief of 
Medicine at the VA in Houston and I stayed on there until 
1961. At that time, my sed rate came down after many years 
and I decided that I really wasn't going to become disabled 
from rheumatoid after all. So, I decided to go out and start a 
practice. I joined a group in internal medicine on the faculty 
of Case Western Reserve. I found the group to be not very

ethical, however, and I decided to leave it. Of course, that left 
me out of a job. I was in the process of working out some 
research at Case Western when Dr. Moyer from Hahnemann 
met me. He asked me to come to Philadelphia and he the 
teaching coordinator for the Department of Medicine. I came 
here, but I never got to be teaching coordinator because Dean 
Kellow saw me and asked me to be Associate Dean for ever- 
ything. There was only one Associate Dean. I had admissions, 
student affairs, academics, the whole works. 

Medic: So when you first came to Hahnemann, you were 
Dean of Students — plus. 

Bennett: Yes, the whole works. Eventually, I was able to get 
someone else to be the Chairman of Admissions and I moved 
into student affairs. Our Dean felt that there was a huge need 
in terms of the curriculum. And so, for about two years, I was 
out of student affairs which was taken over by Dr. Gonnella 
(now a Dean at Jefferson). During that time, I was chairman 
of the curriculum committee and we initiated all of the 
changes which led to the new core curriculum which is now 
the old curriculum. We developed those changes in 196.'? but 
didn't initiate the first part of the curriculum changes until 
the late 60's, so it was a long process. I then returned to 
student affairs as well as handling academic affairs. 

Medic: Were you still practicing during this time? 

Bennett: It varied, Initially, I was at Philadelphia General 
Hospital where I did a lot of the gastroenterology. Eventually, 
we lost our Chief of Medicine at PGH and I I became the new 
Chief of Medicine. I then recruited Dr. Coodley to come in 
and be Chief of Medicine over there. After that, I primarily 
had my practice at Hahnemann. Other than that, I've pretty 
much been Associate Dean for Student Affairs. 

Medic: Let me just go back a little bit. You've given me quite 
a long history of your life. 

Bennett: Well, you asked for it. 

Medic: When was the first time that you knew that you 
wanted to be a doctor? 

Bennett: I'd say in high school. This was a state teachers 
college training school, and it was through several student 
teachers that I developed this interest in biology. And by my 
freshman year in college, I was sure that I wanted to go into 
medicine. The influence wasn't from members of my family 
- my father and brother were engineers. 

Medic: Did you have a big family growing up? 

Bennett: No, my own personal family was very small, just 
my brother and myself. He has two children and I have two 
children, all girls. I have twin daughters, who were born after 
sixteen years of marriage. One of my daughters has a masters 
degree in mechanical engineering and is currently in England 
with her husband who is an aeronautical engineer and has a 

job in a space center. She is going to school at Leeds and 
working as a teaching assistant. My other daughter is an 
entomologist (study of insects) and is married to a Ph.D in 
entomology. They live in southern New Jersey where she 
works as a consultant to a firm that sells insecticides. 

Medic: Who had the biggest influence upon you growing up? 

Bennett: That would be hard to say, I suspect it would be my 
brother, who was about ten years older than I was. But I think 
the biggest influence came from the several student teachers 
in college who steered me into medicine. Also one camp direc- 
tor who guided me all the way through high school and even 
into medical school. 

Medic: Who were the influential people you met while in 
medical school? 

Bennett: There were many. Surprisingly enough, a lot of 
them were not in the field of internal medicine. For instance, 
a urologist from whom I formulated my ideas concerning the 
work ethic. He was a fantastic worker and was the one who 
discovered orchiectomy for cancer of the prostate. Others 
included some phychiatrists and an internist who I disliked 
violently but who practiced very good internal medicine. But 
I think that I had already decided on internal medicine by the 
time I was in my sophomore year. 

Medic: What were your duties as Dean of Students twenty 
years ago as compared to now? 

Bennett: I don't know that it has changed that much. Be- 
cause it was diluted with so many other jobs, I probably did 
less. Specifically, it had to do with aiding the students 
throughout their training program, to work with student com- 
plaints and problems, trying to alter the curriculum for their 
benefit, trying to get facilities for the students, and 
trying to alter faculty attitudes which were somewhat fierce. I 
recall the faculty telling the students to "look on either side of 
you and one of you is is not going to be here next year." That 
sort of thing created a terror and was not helped by spot 
examinations, a percentiale grading system, and class rank 
tabulated almost every day. I think that the amount of things 
that needs to be done always exceeds the capacity of this 
office; there is an infinite amount of things that you need to 
do for so many people. 

Medic: How do you feel that medical students have changed 
while you have been here? 



Bennett: Well, you'd be surprised: it's quite a bit. One of the 
major changes that I've observed is the medical student's 
greater realization for what's called the "quality of life." 
That's a change within the last ten years. In talking to stu- 
dents about residencies, that has played more of a role in their 
life decisions than it did in the past. Back then, it was expect- 
ed that you would "break your back" in whatever field you 
went into. Now, a large part of the student's career decision 
has to do with what their lifestyle will be. I think that's a 
mistake, because I believe that the lifestyle is going to change 
in all of these fields. It may be that people are avoiding 
internal medicine because of their belief that the lifestyle will 
be hectic. Those people may find that in twenty years, with 
shared call in a group practice, internal medicine could have 
as good a lifestyle as. say. radiology. In general, the student's 
outlooks are much better, but most of that is due to a change 
in the school. When I first came here, there were no loan 
programs and I decided to loan my money to the students. 
The first thing I remember about that was when I gave a 
check for $300.00 to a student who didn't have any money to 
eat with over the Christmas holidays. Well, he looked at the 
check and said "what's the catch?" And that summed up the 
attitude among the students, that the school did nothing for 
you. There had to be some sort of gimmick, or catch, or 
something to your detriment. That, fortunately, has changed. 
Most students, facing the frustrations of medical school, even- 
tually realize that there are a lot of people trying to do things 
for them. Many students now realize that the bad things that 
happen were not specifically designed just for them — they 
are just part of the system. I'm not sure students believed that 
in the past. 

Medic: What do you see in the future for the field of Medi- 

Bennett: I think that "Medicine the Queen" is still going to 
be so. It will still be fruitful, desirable, and fulfilling. I really 
don't think that Medicine is going to be destroyed by such 
things as DRG's. etc. I think that we're going through a period 
of real stress and there's going to be a time when it's going to 
be real discouraging to be in Medicine. As more and more non- 
scientific organizations such as Medicare keep making rules, it 

will become harder to fend for your patients. And I honestly 
think that the doctor's biggest role in all of this is survival and 
fending for his patients. The doctor has got to realize that it is 
his patient's welfare that he is striving for. And all the rest he 
has to manipulate, along with his patient, through a morass of 
systems. I think that it will be a great challenge and I suspect 
that we will come out of it eventually with some sort of 
swingback to what I see humanistically as more attention to 
the needs of the people rather than to the needs of the federal 
government, hospitals, etc. There may well be a greater swing 
toward "health-care systems." toward such things as groups 
offering health maintenance. At the moment. I don't think 
that they've shown themselves to be highly profitable. The 
ultimate swing may be toward preventative medicine, if we 
could only find some better ways to prevent disease. At the 
moment. I think we're still treating disease, but the future 
probably lies in preventative medicine. 

Medic: How would you evaluate the Class of '85? You might 
comment on all of the changes that we've been through. 

Bennett: Now your class was the first one to go through the 
new curriculum, which is actually what the students were 
doing ten or fifteen years ago. I think that one of the things 
that happened to you was that the return back had not been 
perfected. So I think that you have gone through a series of 
not very ideal programs simply because they were made to 
handle the approach of the onrushing new academic year. 
Every year, a new year had to be designed that was not like 
the previous year. You were also faced with many people who 
were in love with the old system and who tried to introduce 
almost piecemeal the old. radical system into the new, conser- 
vative system; they wanted to give you a mix. In responding to 
this. I think that your class has done very well. I have not seen 
any great influx of emotional problems, although you have to 
realize that most medical students and doctors are a little bit 
on the emotional side. Nor have I seen that there is any great 
suffering in your academic performance. I have worried aboul 
a number of students who got caught in the system, e.g.. the 
national boards phenomenon. It's been a very painful situa- 


tion overall, but fortunately we're getting it straightened out. 
Hopefully, the curriculum committee will help us to get back 
to the old conservative system. It may have lacked a little 
luster, but it did work in providing a good basic training. I 
don't think that we can have both worlds completely. I do 
hope, however, that we can introduce earlier clinical contact 
into the first two years. I found that your class not only had a 
great deal of frustration, but also wondered whether they 
wanted to go into medicine at all after having spent V/2 years 
in non-medicine prior to the introduction to clinical medicine 
course, in which you became overwhelmed with the volume of 
material. Part of that was due to the fact that they tried to put 
back some of the core III material and they jammed the 

Medic: What does the future hold for Dean Bennett? 

Bennett: That's really hard. You don't know because you 
can't tell what age holds for you. About a year ago. Dr. Beljan 
indicated that he wanted me to move out of student affairs. 
probably because of my age. I'm (57. and I think he wanted a 
smooth transition and asked if 1 would "transist" with Dr. 
Gary Anderson. It hasn't been officially announced las of this 
interview), but he announced it to the students and it is pretty 
much general knowledge. He's asked me to stay on with the 
institution but not as Dean of Students. My new functions 
will be two. First is as acting chairman of the Department of 
Family Medicine. In the past, it was a part of the Department 
of Medicine and the Dean wanted to establish an individual 
department of family medicine. I'm an internist and not ex- 
actly the right fit for family medicine, so I may he phasing out 
of the job as soon as I attract a high-caliber chairman. The 
other duty which he wants me to undertake I find very inter- 
esting. I am to be Associate Dean for Medical Education, not 
with the radical view that I had twenty years ago. but with the 
idea to alter the teaching within the curriculum and to im- 
prove both its caliber and its appropiateness for medical stu- 
dents. I think we will initially concentrate on the clinical 
teaching programs, particularly at the affiliates. So. I will be 
doing a lot of visiting with students there during the coming 

year. I'll be working with Dr. De Palma (head of affiliations) 
to try to improve the teaching and the evaluation system. I'll 
also be working with Dr. Kolmen and others to get some 
modification of the first two years, but I don't anticipate any 
radical changes. So, my plans are to never retire, but it may 
well be that those plans will fall flat. But at least for the next 
few years. I'll be busy with the new job. 

Medic: Well. I want to thank you Dr. Bennett for spending 
some time talking to me. 

Bennett: My pleasure. 

Medic: I want to know if you have any final message or 
advice for the Class of '85 as we leave Hahnemann'. 1 

Bennett: My advice is very similar to what it was to last 
year's class. Medicine, temporarily, is going to get a little on 
the grim side. If you stick with it, I don't have any question 
that it will come out into the sunlight and things will get 
straightened around so that we can do what our real job is — 
to fend for our patients. Interfere minimally, but interfere 
where it is fruitful, where it is helpful. The last thing is. 
remember that it isn't wrong to love your patients and have 
them love you. That's part of the essence of medicine.

The Class Of 1985: On Stage 

Hippocratus. Bacon. Lister. The list of great physicians is endless. And their ranks may 
someday be swollen by the addition of graduating members of the Hahnemann Universi- 
ty Class of 1985. On the following 167 pages, then, we will present a personal look at each 
of these medical students turned physicians. But first, you might want to read about how the 
Class of '85 reached this memorable point in their lives. Here, then, is . . . 

The Ballad Of The Class Of '85 

If you will all now listen to me 

I have something here you all should see 

For I now present a history 

Of the fabled life and times of the Class of '85 

It started in August, 1981 

That was when orientation begun 

They told us then there wouldn't be much fun 

For the work-shirking members of the Class of '85 

But we were 180, strong and true 

And willing to do what they told us to 

But by graduation, we would lose thirty-two 

From the original men and women of the Class of '85 

Our first-term classes numbered three: 

Biochem, Histo, and Gross Anatomy 

And nobody went to Psychiatry 

During the tough first year of the Class of '85 

Biochem taught us enzymes of every shape and size 
And metabolic pathways to learn and memorize 
Angstadt, Baggott, Devlin, and Chi'h only summarize 
The biochemist teachers for the Class of '85 

Histo wasn't all that hard, for us that was just fine 
It was Microscopic Anatomy with Amenta and 

We learned to distinguish tissue sections at mag 99 
An easy course for most of the Class of '85 

Of Gross Anatomy, I'll not say one more line 

The song I wrote in freshman year will do the job just fine 

So I'll now refer you to this version on page 109 

This was sung for the skits of the Class of '85 

S. Poulos was the president throughout our fledgling year 
B. Burstein ran the note service, which some disliked I 

And many led the charge to Doc's for post-class, post-test 

For we were social people too in the Class of '85 

Our first term was quite busy, we had scant free time to 

But despite the heavy courseload, there was some time to 

An ear to all our classmates, we began to make new friends 
We grew very, very close, did the Class of '85 

The second term of freshman year began post-weekend 

And after a great performance on finals, we thought we 

were quite a sensation 
But Physio, Micro, and Neuroanatomy would become a 

For the overconfident scholars of the Class of '85 

Physiology was taught by some flamboyant types 
Such as Torres, Angelakos, Altaveer, and Snipes 
And Ambromovage lectured on all the G.I. pipes 
These were quite confusing lectures for the Class of '85 

They scheduled these lectures 9-10 times a week 
To attend all of them was not for the meek 
Then the Bios tats portion left Kushner to seek 
Any audience to speak to from the Class of '85 

Microbiology would speak of things very small 
Of fungi and viruses and parasites all 
Ruled over by a chairman named Dr. Crowell 
It didn't "bug" us much in the Class of '85 

We learned to grow cultures and to do a gram stain 
Ngwenya, Landau, Weidanz, and Saluk really did strain 
To infect us with enthusiasm for their small domain 
But they didn't always interest us, the Class of '85 

The brain and all nerve pathways found in cord and even 

Were taught in Neuroanatomy by one Dr. DePace 
But most of us did wish that we were in some other place 
This was not the most liked course by the Class of '85 

Summer finally came at last between years one and two 
Our final long vacation; this sorry fact we knew 
Some would stay in Philly, others homeward flew 
This time passed too quickly for the Class of '85 


Medic June 6, 1985 

We started year two with Path and Pharm 
Which rumor had said would cause no harm 
By October, however, we felt some alarm 
They weren't all that easy for the Class of '85 

The Pharm department gave a very good example 
Of how to run a course despite material ample 
Taught by Chernick, Calesnick, Zarro, and Sample 
They were very good teachers for the Class of '85 

Drug labs were fun-filled, with narcotics, diuretics 
And we learned beta-blockers, psychotrophics, 

The exams, though, put us through mental athletics 
It was voted best department by the Class of '85 

Now Path, on the other hand, was not taught as well 
As the temperature dropped, likewise class attendance 

But the day Martinez walked out is a story we'll all tell 
To the great-great-grandchildren of the Class of '85 

I must admit, however, that the course was not of ease 
Rubin and Lumb did do their best teaching microscopic 

A national boards-type final exam was not designed to 

Most were able to pass it in the Class of '85 

Ray Lupkas was our president, he made sure our class 

was heard 
In curriculum debates, when displeasure was incurred 
Jon Wahrenberger ran the note service and very rarely 

For two years he was president of the Class of '85 

The class now grew impatient for some kind of clinical 

Of pathways, slides, and basic science we all had had 

So we welcomed ICM, without knowing just how tough 
This course would be to handle for the Class of '85 

Introduction to Clinical Medicine described to you and 

Was diagnosis and etiology of disease, excluding therapy 
We learned subsets of internal medicine, broadcast on 

'Twas the end of basic science for the Class of '85 

The textbook was called Cecil's, it was encyclopedic size 
And the microscopic printing was not easy on the eyes 
The handbook reading assignments were nothing but 

gross lies 
They were changed almost weekly for the Class of '85 

To learn the physical exam we practiced on each other 
The neck and throat exam just seemed to make our 

partners smother 
I hear some overzealous students practiced on their 

But we finally felt like doctors, did the Class of '85 

The amount of info was quite large, the failure rate was 

Course leaders Major, Cosgrove, Lang didn't seem to 

wonder why 
A comprehensive final wasn't all we had to vie 
With, they found one more pitfall for the Class of '85 

For somewhere on the 19th floor, an administrative 

Said "to reach third year you now must pass part I, 

national board" 
We called this late decision unfair, our pleas, though, 

were ignored 
There were eight casualties from the Class of '85 

Third year began in mid-July, the class was now 

Of the coming year, however, little was decided 
Where we went and what we did was often not confided 
Til a few days before to the Class of '85 

One half-class took Medicine, Vacation, and Psychiatry 
The other OB/GYN. Peds. and lastly Surgery 
Didactic weeks both fore and aft completed the 

With everpresent exams for the Class of '85 

Many during clerkships did call Hahnemann their home 
To Crozer, Sayre, and Erie many others chose to roam 
And the residency pamphlets, we soon began to comb 
But most threw them out from the Class of '85 

Psych, for their lectures, tried to chain us to our chair 
By ignoring affiliate evaluations. Mort was hardly fair 
And all the end-rotation tests, caused us mental wear 
These were third-year highlights for the Class of '85 

And then at long last, we arrived in year four, we 
Needed Academic, Sub-internship. Ambulatory 
The rest of the schedule was the students' own story 
We chose our own electives did the Class of '85 

The fall saw some take section II. national board exam 
And almost all would pass it without a need to cram 
The rest would wait till April, but their success was no 

We really knew our stuff, did the Class of '85 

Perhaps the most important thing, the highlight of the 

Was the matching process leading to our ultimate career 
Some approached it nervously, the rest with outright 

For it would shape the future lives of the Class of '85 

The application process stretched from summer into fall 
And the interview techniques, did not our class enthrall 
While rejecting you they'd say "we would love to take 

you all" 
This was not quite belie\ed by the Class of '85 

There were those who matched in autumn: Army, 

Neuro, Eyes and Derm 
Others signed outside the match, agreements not as firm 
The rest were left to wait for March, to worry, sweat, 

and squirm 
'Twas not a relaxed time for the Class of '85

But on the whole the impression was 
neither of tragedy nor of comedy. There 
was no describing it. It was manifold and 
various; there were tears and laughter, 
happiness and woe; it was tedious and 
interesting and indifferent; it was as you 
saw it; it was tumultuous and passionate; 
it was grave; it was sad and comic; it was 
trivial; it was simple and complex; joy 
was there and despair; the love of moth- 
ers for their children, and of men for 
women; lust trailed itself through the 
rooms with leaden feet, punishing the 
guilty and the innocent, helpless wives 
and wretched children; drink seized men 
and women and cost its inevitable price; 
death sighed in these rooms; and the be- 
ginning of life, filling some poor girl with 
terror and shame, was diagnosed there. 
There was neither good nor bad there. 
There were just facts. It was life. 

W. Somerset Maugham, OF HUMAN 


Old Doc lay across the foot of the bed. 

Jody whispered, "Doc!" 

Doc grunted and lifted his head. 

"What is it-what is it-what is it?" 

"Doc! Look at Pa!" 

Doc shifted his body and eased himself 
on one elbow. He blinked and rubbed his 
eyes. He sat up. He leaned over Penny.

He had had much experience of physicians, and said, "The only way to 
keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't 
like, and do what you'd druther not." - Mark Twain 

"You are a great deal better, are you not, my 
dear?" said the gentleman, 

"Yes, thank you, sir" replied Oliver. 

"Yes, I know you are," said the gentleman, "You're 
hungry too, an't you?" 

"No, sir," answered Oliver. 

"Hem!" said the gentleman. "No, I know you're 
not. He is not hungry, Mrs. Bedwin," said the gentle- 
man, looking very wise. 

The old lady made a respectful inclination of the 
head, which seemed to say that she thought the doc- 
tor was a very clever man. The doctor appeared much 
of the same opinion himself. 

"You feel sleepy, don't you, my dear?" said the 

"No, sir," replied Oliver. 

"No," said the doctor, with a very shrewd and 
satisfied look, "You're not sleepy. Nor thirsty. Are 

"Yes, sir rather thirsty," answered Oliver. 

"Just as I expected, Mrs. Bedwin," said the doctor.

Johnston, Jones, Letcher, Lupkas, 
Malamut, Matunis, Morrison, Nied- 
bala, Nonack, Poropatich, Schwartz, 
Sedor, Seidman, and Tollevsen. Con- 
gratulations, all. 

MARRIED, to each other among 
members of the Class of '85: Ira Horo- 
witz and Lisa Sher, Charlie Finn and 
Myra Gibson, Victor Szanto and Evye 

BORN, at least one child to the fam- 
ilies of these members of the Class of 
'85 during the past four years: Barry 
Herman, Rick Smith, Jeff Williams, 
Millie Vitolo-Gallo, and Carol De- 
Bakker (two children with a third due 
July, '85). 

CONTACTED, for the first time, the 
Class of '85 by the Hahnemann Alum- 
ni Association on Match Day. Some- 
thing to do with "everlasting grati- 
tude", I think. 

REFURBISHED, the lobby of 

Geary Auditorium in 1982 with com- 
fortable chairs, plants, and wind- 
proof revolving door. You still can't 
eat there. 

WORN, for the past four years in a 
row, Mort Perlman's maroon sport 

RAIDED, the Morning Glory, by the 
police in 1984 and eventually closed 
down for activities deemed "inappro- 

UNBROKEN, all of the escalators 
on August 7, 1983 at 10:43 AM for 
what is believed to be the only time 
this rare occurence transpired during 
the past four years. 

PROGRESSED, to the twentieth 
century, the note service, by purchas- 
ing a Xerox machine to replace the 
fossil they were using. 

INTRODUCED, to the Class of '85 
on Match Day, the new Dean of the 
Medical school, Dr. Beljan, more than 
a year after he was appointed. 

READ, the Philadelphia Inquirer in 
the back of Geary during numerous 

less than stimulating lectures during 
the first year. 

SLEPT, at home till almost noon 
during many of those same lectures by 
the members of the Class of '85 who 
don't read the Philadelphia Inquirer. 

PASSED, part I of the National 
Board exam by all but eight members 
of the class in June, 1983. 

MATCHED, on March 13, 1985, the 
senior class to various hospitals and 
programs across the nation. 47% got 
their first choice, l&'<, got their second 
choice, 14% got their third choice, and 
eight students didn't match. 

FINISHED, the yearbook, at last, 
during the spring of '85. The editors 
were unavailable for comment, but 
were later seen shouting "screw the 
deadline" while banging their heads 
into the office typewriter. 

GRADUATED, the Class of '85, 
proudly, at the Academy of Music on 
June 6.

A Match Made In Geary 

The sun shone brightly on 
the morning of March 13, 
1985 (perhaps a little too 
bright for those members of the 
Class of '85 who had engaged in 
some prematch celebration the 
night before). It was Match Day, 
the day when most of the senior 
class would find out where they 
would be learning and practicing 
medicine for the coming year(s). 
All over the country, at 12 noon, 
medical school seniors could be 
found opening up their envelopes 
and reading with joy (or dismay) 
the results of the matching pro- 

At Hahnemann, however, the 
day began at 9:00 AM for three- 
fourths of the class with a group 
exit interview for those of us who 
had taken loans to pay for medical 
school. With bloodshot eyes, we 
listened to how most of our sala- 
ries over the next 10-25 years had 
already been claimed by various 
lending institutions and banks. It 
was a depressing ninety minutes. 
Then, at 10:30, came an endless 
parade of speakers which included 
the registrar, Dr. Bennett, Dr. 
Brown, and somebody who I later 
found out was the new Dean of the 

Medical School, Dr. Beljan. By 
the time class president Jon Wah- 
renberger stepped up at 11:15, it 
was an impatient and increasingly 
irate crowd he had to face. Class 
business was dispatched hurriedly 
as the sound of champagne corks 
popping began to be heard. 

At 11:45, the match envelopes 
made their entry into Geary, were 
divided alphabetically into four 
groups, and were then stationed at 
the remote corners of the audito- 
rium. At 12 noon, the signal was 
given and the envelopes were 
opened, spewing their tales of joy 
or disappointment into the eyes of 
the members of the Class of '85. 

I remember little of what tran- 
spired during the ensuing 10-15 
minutes, except that a lot of ten- 
sion seemed to have been removed 
from the room, and that my class- 
mates were wearing some of the 
biggest smiles I had ever seen. 

There was a party immediately 
after at Emily Rommel Hall 
which many people attended early 
in the afternoon. But by this time, 
the emotional high that we had 
experienced was starting to wane, 
and most people simply had lunch 
or went home to await the even- 

ing's festivities. A check of Rom- 
mel Hall later that afternoon re- 
vealed about twenty classmates 
sitting quietly talking as the real- 
ization of the day's events began 
to enter their collective conscious- 

The Match Day party was held 
at the Society Hill Club on 5th 
Street. There was an open bar, 
dancing, vast quantities of food, 
and swimming for those so in- 
clined. Of this pleasant gathering, 
I'll say no more here. But I can 
attest that the pictures on the fol- 
lowing pages do not fully capture 
the enjoyment of the members of 
the Class of '85 of simply being 
with each other for one final time 
before graduation. It may have 
been a match made in Geary, but 
these were friendships made for-

At St. Francis Medical Center 
were innovative. 

about Pittsburgers. We're innovators. We 
opened the West, put pickles in every ice box 
in America, and devised the most relentless 
defense in football history. Our iron and steel 
span rivers and caress clouds all over the 

St. Francis Medical Center aligns itself 
with this proud tradition. It was the first 
general hospital in the United States to treat 
alcoholism as a disease. One of our medical 
staff members introduced the first 
electrocardiographic machine to American 
physicians. We were the first in Pittsburgh to 
treat cancer with a betatron. We opened the 
first unit in Pennsylvania for the treatment of 
adolescent chemical dependency. 

The largest hospital in Western 
Pennsylvania, St. Francis is a teaching hospital 
with nine residency programs: 

• Transitional 

• Internal Medicine 

• Diagnostic Radiology 

• Therapeutic Radiology 

• Psychiatry 

• Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 

• Ophthalmology 

• Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation 

• A Fellowship in Cardiology 

We have more than 200 beds in a 
separate psychiatric facility and the largest 
Department of Rehabilitation Medicine 
between Philadelphia and Chicago. And 
currently, in order to continue to treat our 
patients' minds, bodies and spirits with the 
level of excellence we have established, we are 
involved in the largest building project in our 
history. Our administration has also 
undergone the most extensive corporate 
restructuring of any Pittsburgh hospital. We're 
a health system with a stellar past, a busy 
present and a promising future.

For The 

Class Of 1985 



"Medicine is a science whose progress is announced in medical 
journals but is consolidated only in books. For the young physi- 
cians, the medical book is a guarantee of the classic solidity of his 
profession, just as for the aging practitioner it is the companion 
whose wisdom has grown along with his own through the years." 
Dr. Felix Martilbanez 

We would be happy to continue as your 
supplier of medical books. Our best wishes 
for a successful and prosperous future.
